Amruta asked

Hello Sheetal, My name is Amruta. I am a hardware engineer and worked and studied in San Diego, Cali
Hello Sheetal, My name is Amruta. I am a hardware engineer and worked and studied in San Diego, California for 9 years. I worked at Motorola designing the electrical hardware and in Qualcomm handling the teachnical accounts with the business to business customers. I returned to India worked for a year as it was a lateral transfer and then have been on a career break for 6 years now. I have a daughter who is quiet independent now and so I can rethink about working. My problem is how to get my skillset in front of telecom companies in Mumbai. I tried websites which hardly respond back. I want to get back in the corporate world but I am missing something.. not able to get the right headhunters or contacts in the companies. Please advise.

Hi Amruta, Thanks for reaching out. If i understand right, your Job search has not been in your favour so far. But please be assured, it is temporary situation. You can overcome it if you follow few tips:\n1. If you are unable to get any response from corporate, try your hands at small or medium size companies or start-ups.\n2. Try to update your skills if stuff has changed in your industry in the last 6 years\n3. Network and reach out to your ex-colleagues. The more you meet them and speak to them, you will be able to identify the changed trends in your industry. And you can bridge the gap.\n4, Practice your pitch focussing on what were you doing before the break rather than focussing on the break.\n\nWatch this video, might be helpful https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6mIEqtZgps \n\nWish you all the best with your career comeback. Stay connected :)
